At Phase 6 your students have all their sounds and are expanding their vocabulary and knowledge of the English language. As they develop these skills some will need more exposure to words than others. This is where my games find their niche. You can use these games in an RTI session (like I do), or you can put them in a Literacy Centre or use them for group work. Regardless of the learner's ability level, they all like playing games and Donkey appeals to all ages. Those students who need the extra exposure and repetition will be getting it and it will be fun.

A lot of my students at this level don't like reading. They do it because they have to, but they don't pick up a book voluntarily. These games become the hook for them to get interested in words. The more words they know, the easier reading becomes. You will see fluency levels rise over time by playing lots of word games (and reading).

Switcheroo is another game I use a lot at this level. I mix up the games to maintain the motivation and to target specific skill development. Switcheroo is great for phonemic awareness and developing blending skills in multisyllabic words.

I have been teaching for over 30 years now and I have documented my strategies and provided lots of resources in my handbook: "The Literacy Intervention Handbook"

It's available at TpT and will give you lots of ideas for differentiating and catering for those kids who need motivating.
